  • Red Rocks: Nature's concert hall in the Rockies

    Jan 23, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unique rock formations. Excellent outdoor concert venue. Hiking, gift shop, and restaurant on the premises.
    Cons: Parking lots are scattered about - some hard to find. Amphitheater sometimes closed to public.

    Summary: Just west of Denver, CO there are great rock formations jutting out of the ground in haphazard fashion.  Some formations are large enough to form hills (Dinosaur Ridge) that are laced with dinosaur footprints, while other rocks are just strewn about ... read more

    Pros: Fantastic views, great sound
    Cons: Could be easier to get to

    Summary: Before I'd ever seen a concert at Red Rocks, I was told that there were no bad seats in the house. I didn't believe it until I went to check it out myself - and it's true. Even if you're sitting way back in the corner of the very last row, you'll still ... read more
